Should i use warm or cool shades?
I have warm-toned pale skin (3y03 in Pantone), warm eyes (hazel green), but really purple toned lips and, if I left my hair natural it would be salt and pepper. I dye my hair dark brown, but waver between neutral and warm tones. When I wear warm tones, i think I look good, but the second my lipstick fades, I look washed out. I have used the Bobbi Brown philosophy which is based on lip tone, but sometimes feel washed out with full makeup on. (Bobbi's makeup is very blue based, and my natural lip shade is her pink mauve.) should I just make sure I can re apply all day?

Givenchy Eyeliner Not Performing
I'm very disappointed with the Givenchy black eyeliner I purchased recently.  It will go on somewhat for the first eye -- rather sticky and I have to fill it in with another liner; however, it seems to have dried out before I can do second eye.  What am I doing wrong.   The cap has remained on it at all times when not in use.  I have had an eyeliner dry up after forgetting the top so I haven't made that mistake twice.   Suzi

Best chemical exfoliant for complicated skin
I am interested in trying a chemical exfoliant, but am not sure which would be best for me skin.  I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin.  Blackheads on my nose are a particular concern of mine.  I really want to find something that will clean out my pores and brighten my skin tone.  I am wary to try a chemical exfoliant because of my sensitivity, but think this is probably the best way to treat my skin outside of a dermatologist.  What would you suggest?  I'm not too concerned about price, as long as it works!

Will I be able to return or exchange this?
My family knows I am a beauty and skincare junkie so recently my aunt bought me the Ole Henriksen's ultimate lift gel eye cream. I've only used it a handful of time and I can already tell it's reacting poorly with my skin. I don't have a receipt since it was a gift, and I threw away the box it came in, not thinking twice about it. Would I be able to go to my local Sephora and exchange this for something else? (She told me it was indeed purchased at a Sephora. If I can exchange it, does it need to be for another eye cream or can I get anything?

Why won't my lips stop peeling!!?
It's so annoying. I have used every lip product out there from Bite's and Fresh's scrubs, to Sephora's $6 balm to Amore Pacific's $42 balm, Fresh lip serum and every product in between and nothing helps. NOTHING. Spring, summer, fall and winter, it's not even seasonal. Vaseline even, nothing works.    When I'm not wearing balms I'm wearing moisturizing lipsticks.    I just don't get it. I don't think there is anything else for me to try.    Anyone else suffer from this and have you found a solution? It's been years and years for me of trying everything.

Eye crayons (aka Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks)
I have a Charlotte Tilbury eye crayon that I love and I'm wondering if Sephora carries any that I would like as much. I do not want a ton of metallic/frost. It doesn't have to be matte or anything, just not off the wall metallic. I found the Laura Mercier ones too  metallic except the one dark brown one which is too dark for an all over wash of color which is what I am looking for color.   Any suggestions on others I could look at?

Foundation
I have been using Tarte clay foundation for almost two years. I love the coverage it gives me but I really want to try another foundation. The only setback is, my skin is extremely light. I have difficulties finding a foundation that doesn't make me look orange, so I am hesitant to stray from the one I already am comfortable with. Can you recommend another brand of full-coverage foundation, which shade and a concealer that will pair nicely? I have yellow undertones around my t-zone. Not many break outs but I am prone to a large blemish or two a couple times a month.

Is there a liquid lipstick comparable to Kat Von D's liquid lipsticks?
